Over 60 civilians killed in north Syria – monitor


BEIRUT: More than 60 civilians were killed by shelling and air strikes in the northwest of Syria on Friday, a monitoring group said, hours before the end of a shaky ceasefire for the Eid al-Fitr holiday. Fighting has continued since the truce was announced on Wednesday. Thirty-four civilians, including four children, were killed and 200 others wounded by rebel shelling in regime-held areas, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. State news agency SANA gave a lower toll of 23 dead and 140 wounded, accusing the rebels of violating the ceasefire.
